 The crossroad where Killbillies & slashers collide! These genres have almost been exclusively combined in modern times, but aside from the original TCM, 1980's Mother's Day was really where we see this become the norm. It is directed by the brother of Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman, Charles Kaufman in his only directorial effort with cameos from most of the Kaufman family, is a sister picture to a much more famous and influential slasher, and was so offensive and controversial it was banned in the UK for several decades.

Plus, musical guest "Deeds Of Flesh" appear courtesy Horror Pain Gore Death Productions.
